Slither - Well, THAT was entertaining. Not particularly scary. Not as humorous as I expected, either. But it was still a fun movie along the lines of Tremors. I am a fan of Nathan Fillion, so I was happy to see him in this. I am now also quite the fan of Elizabeth Banks. She's a might bit purty, ain't she?


Gonna go see Zack & Miri then?
From what I understand there is no nakedness in the movie. At least not of the Banks variety. I sure as hell don't need to see Rogens ass again. Ugh. The wife and I are fans of Kevin Smith movies, so we'll see it eventually. Probably not in the theater, though.

Taken from Wiki:

Code:
Due to confusion over the film's ambiguity, in an interview, del Toro clarified that, in his own view, the fantasy world isn't only Ofelia's imagination; the Underground Realm does exist, and in the end, Ofelia does actually escape to the fantasy world (where she would be more happy to live in than the real world).

bah. What does the director know? moron. I'm with DR and Esper. Works better that way.

I saw some movie called Boy Eats Girl.

...

remove your mind from the gutter, please...

ok, thanks. It was basically another angsty kid  turns into a zombie while trying to score movie. More zombies show up,lots of people get eaten, all turns out well in the end. Amusing.

I've got Slither on the way. I've been wanting to see it for awhile.

My wife rented some obscure horror movie called Crazy Eights. It actually ended up being not too bad. Well filmed, fairly well acted, and the environment was actually a bit spooky. Not great by any means, but worth a rental.

I also saw the Jesse James movie. Talk about a somber affair. Well done all around. A bit slow in parts, but nothing that had me wanting to hit FF. I really liked the music and the cinematography.
Code:
So Jesse took off his guns and went to dust that picture [i]knowing[/i] he would get shot. Why did he do this? Simply ready to die?
Man, I wanted to punch that Robert Ford in the face. Slimy Weasel.

Yeah, I heard about The Fall last week. It's on my list.

I watched Zodiac Friday night. Damn, that was a long movie. I liked the first half more than the second. Too much jumping around. Overall, not a bad movie, but not as good as I was hoping for.

Watched Pumpkinhead Sat. night. Pretty typical 80's horror movie. Not scary in the least. I'm surprised I'd never seen this until now, being quite the lover of horror movies.

Watched The Goonies again with the fam yesterday. I still love it, but man do I want to punch that fat kid in the face. Shut the fuck up already!

What is that I see over yonder, loyal Toadfrog?:


It is thyne enemy! For the glory of Toadfrogonia, I shall vanquish thee!:


My apprentice was a tad less enthused:


BTW, that is my son Benjamin. He's 7 and is a great kid. I'm pretty sure he thinks his dad is nuts, though.

I saw this, and thought of this thread. WTF?

Worms DO kick ass, though.

The Island - What a waste of a cool premise. It even started out fine. Then Mr. Bay decided just to go back to what he knew and ruined it. Scarlet looked great, though.

The Mist - Man, is this ever overrated. It was not bad by any means, but I was expecting better. The CG was atrocious and really took away from the film. The ending was quite rough.

Superbad - a ridiculously crude and not very funny movie. The Seth character was just so unlikeable. I was offended for all the women of the world with that one scene. I may have chuckled once or twice.

Juno - I actually kinda liked this one. Some of the dialog was out of place, but the movie was really good otherwise. Ellen Page made this movie better than it could have been.


Which scene of Superbad? The one in Home Ec or the one at the party?

I liked Superbad a lot. I took it for what it was, a movie about two confused and awkward kids who want so badly to be cool.

My most recent movie was Juno. About 3 times. I like it.


The Menstrual blood scene. NOT funny.
I just never bought into the character of Seth. I know how crude us guys can be, but he was just so over the top. Plus, the whole idea of him getting together with the hot girl was terribly unrealistic. He is really quite the ugly fellow. lol.

Took the fam to see Spiderwick Chronicles last weekend. Not a bad movie, really. It's obvious that theres a lot more to the books than what they could jam into a 90 minute(or whatever it was) "kids" movie.

I watched V for Vendetta Friday night. I enjoyed it, but this also felt like I was only being told a very small part of a much bigger story. I'd be half tempted to pick up the graphic novels. Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman were both exellent.
I will never get "Remember, remember the 5th of November..." out of head.

Watched the original Transformers movie with my son yesterday. I still consider it to be a pretty good movie, and far superior to last summers incarnation.

I watched Babel yesterday. I found it to be a pretty good movie. Well shot and acted. The individual stories were more interesting than the overall ark connecting them all, though. Especially the Japanese girl. She did a great job with that role.

I have Audition at home. THAT should be interesting.

Full Metal Jacket - Never saw this until Sat. night. Decent movie. Didn't really get to know much about the characters so the second half was kinda hard to get into. Or was that the whole point? Never know with Kubrick.

The Host - Korean monster movie. I wonder if this was supposed to be scary, because it most certainly was not. It WAS entertaining, though, despite numerous nonsensical moments.

Finally finished the first Covenant trilogy. In the end I liked it, despite Thomas being his prickish self. I'll probably read the second trilogy, but not any time soon.
I have a ton of books laying around waiting to be read.
I think I'm going to read some Sherlock Holmes(I got this giant compendium for Christmas) than read the Last Light of the Sun by Guy Gavriel Kay

I wanted to see Cloverfield, but Nan had no interest in that so we saw Sweeney Todd.
It was quite bizarre, but entertaining as well. Everyone was good in it, the setting was fantastic, and story was just dark and goofy all at the same time. Nan and I agreed that we couldn't recommend it to anyone we know, but did enjoy it.

Also saw Black Sheep over the weekend. A horror movie about sheep gone nuts? Do I need to say any more? Along the lines of Peter Jacksons earlier work(Bad Taste, Dead Alive) but a little tamer. Bizarre fun.

...

Apparently, I really like the word bizarre.

Its been awhile since I've posted in this thread, and I can't remember everything I've seen. oh well.

Transformers - Not as bad as it could have been. I was actually entertained.  I see so much potential here that will never come to fruition. bummer.

Casshern - Now THIS was interesting. Like a live action anime. It's visually amazing with gobs of well-integrated CG. There are some truly great action scenes, and the movie even gets quite thought provoking by the end.
 

I've got Black Sheep and Nausicca and the Valley of Wind sitting at home.  I can't believe I've never seen Nausicca. Looking forward to it.
